The workshop was really fun, enlightening, and goal-oriented. It has affected my life in a lot of ways: I have started noticing my physical and mental states in relationships. It’s been very helpful to think of how others perceive my body language, if sometimes I am giving off an emotion that I haven’t been aware of at all, or if I would like to improve someone’s mood or counteract somebody’s anger. The best applications of this work are in any interactions with people.
